Siblings // September 2015
Indy has become much more alert and active over the past month. He takes notice of everything and watches everyone intently. His favourite person (other than the Milk Machine aka me) is most definitely Busby; his eyes following her in fascination wherever she goes. He’s beginning to grab objects now, and seems to be intent on going for her golden locks, which she thinks is hilarious and encourages it by putting her head of hair in his face.
Busby still isn’t quite sure about Indy. She climbs on my lap, or hugs my legs, whenever I’m not holding him and says: “I love you Mummy”. I know she misses our 1-to-1 time, as I do. Indy’s velcro-ness is beginning to wane slightly, so I have been able to spend more time with her this month; we’ve had some lovely afternoons crafting while Indy has slept in the Papoozle, and the occasional breakfast or cake stop while he’s slept upstairs.
Busby is not very careful around him, in her toddler-bullish manner, and we’ve had a couple of close calls where she’s nearly fallen on him while one of us is in the middle of changing his nappy… She does give him a lovely night time kiss and cuddle most evenings, however, and enjoys helping me bathe him.
Indy is very eager to sit up, although he can’t actually get up himself nor can he sit for more than a few seconds unless propped up… but Busby has taken this to mean that he will soon be ready for games! She took his hand in hers the other day and said “Come on Indy, let’s go for a walk! Follow me!” expecting him to be able to get and up go with her; absolutely heart melting and it makes me feel so excited for their future as brother and sister!
